News Occitania told you about it a few days ago, American series will soon be shot for Netflix in Aveyron. Four one-hour episodes that will see Hugh Laurie (Dr House), Mark Ruffalo (avengers) or even Aria Mia Loberti adapting the novel by Anthony Doerr (a Pulitzer Prize winner) for the screen All the light we can’t see. With bonus Shawn Levy (the trilogy of Night at the Museum) behind the camera.

The story takes place in France during the Second World War. And, it’s not that common, the production chose to film it… in France precisely. Mainly in Saint-Malo. But also in Aveyron! HAS Villefranche-de-Rouergue More precisely.

Hundreds of extras wanted

And the production needs many extras (we are talking about several hundred anyway!) for this shoot which will take place from the end of June to July 22, 2022. We now know the details.

The production is looking for people living in the city (or in the immediate vicinity), elderly from 6 to 75 years old to recreate scenes of life during the Second World War and depict local inhabitants (6-75 years old) and soldiers (18-30 years old) for one to several days of filming.

For it, “open door” castings will take place from April 19 to 23, 2022 in this municipality. At the old Starjouet, in the arcades of Saint-Martial Hospital.

  • Tuesday, April 19: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 20: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

  • Saturday, April 23: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Shaved beard for men, no highlights for women

But beware, in order to correspond to the criteria of the time, there are a few imperatives:

For women, you must have long natural hair (no streaks or discolorations), for men, you will have to agree to let your hair grow, a haircut during the fittings if necessary, and to shave the beard.
